Start some memories
Those that are observant are examples to us, like you Lori. Those that are growing Jewishly, I will remind us: Judaism isn't ALL or NOTHING. Do what we can this Passover & next year grow more,but don't throw it all out, just because we aren't there yet to do it all fully. Start making some memories this year, by celebrating Passover where we are at spiritually & what we can do this year & don't cork it, add more to it next year.

Happy Passover Lori & everyone, yes making memories is so important.

You are so right, Lori!
Unfortunately for alot of people Passover is one of the few things they do jewishly each year. If people start fighting or if the seders are boring and the food indifferent, people will certainly be turned off.
